I think it is an interoperability issue.
If you are very concerned about interoperability, you should be
contacting m$ and ask them why they cannot open odf documents created
using LO. Have you done this?
I searched the Internet and looked for documents randomly to test if
LibreOffice can open them. This is the authentic test.
No, a more authentic test is to search for odf documents and compare
of LO and m$ opens these types of documents.
If Microsoft Office opens the .doc files correctly, LibreOffice should also
open them correctly.
No, LO is not a m$-clone. If LO opens the odt document correctly, m$
should also. Have you tested this?
If Microsoft went bankrupt, what office suite would be able to handle
thousands of .doc files?
Unlikely, but that is the fault entirely of the user that creates the
document in the m$ file format!!!
If LO, or any other odf-compliant software disappears, you can find
another. That is why you should be testing "interoperability" with odf
and not m$ formats.
Then, the data in the .doc files would be lost if no other office suite was
able to open them, I am afraid.
I hope that happens (but a small possibility).
Not many people like converting .doc files into .odt files, I am afraid.
That is their choice. Start creating documents in odf!
